  1. New England Patriots: Rodney Hudson, G/C, Florida State
    Fits the Patriots mold perfectly as an offensive lineman with his instincts, football IQ, versatility, athleticism and character.

  2. Buffalo Bills: Tyron Smith, T, USC
    The Bills need to select a left tackle to protect their franchise quarterback.

  3. Cincinnati Bengals: Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
    The Bengals can get a quarterback on the cheap in Round 2, and they could care less about Mallett's character concerns.

  4. Denver Broncos: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
    The Broncos have Demaryius Thomas, but he's far from a polished receiver and Floyd will make an immediate impact.

  5. Cleveland Browns: Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
    The Browns need to surround Colt McCoy with weapons if he's going to pan out.

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame
    Rudolph has durability problems, but he's too talented to pass up on at this point for a team that needs a tight end.

  7. Tennessee Titans: Aaron Williams, CB, Texas
    Corner is one of the top needs for the Titans, and while Williams can be inconsistent he has a great skill set and would be a good player in Tennessee.

  8. Dallas Cowboys: Mike Pouncey, G, Florida
    The Cowboys need to get younger on the offensive line and Pouncey's an underrated prospect. He struggled at center, but his best position is guard. He has the potential to go in the top 25 of the 2011 NFL Draft.

  9. Washington Redskins: Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois
    Leshoure is a big back and tough to bring down. The Redskins need to move on from Clinton Portis.

  10. Houston Texans: Stephen Paea, NT, Oregon State
    Paea has good weight room strength and a nice motor, but he doesn't get much penetration and he has short arms.

  11. Minnesota Vikings: Christian Ponder, QB, Florida State
    Leslie Frazier commented on drafting a quarterback early. Christian Ponder might be worth the gamble here.

  12. Detroit Lions: Anthony Castonzo, T, Boston College
    Will the Lions finally come around in admitting they need to upgrade at offensive tackle, or will they continue to not put pieces around Matt Stafford to protect him?

  13. San Francisco 49ers: Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
    Taylor has a high upside and the 49ers are drafting on value here - not need.

  14. Denver Broncos: Cam Heyward, DE, Ohio State
    I don't care about Heyward's performance in the Sugar Bowl - his big game is exactly why I dislike him as a prospect. He's too wildly inconsistent. One big game with Heyward means nothing, and that's why he is going in the second round.

  15. St. Louis Rams: Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois
    The Rams will focus on building their defense, and it all starts up front.

  16. Oakland Raiders: Quan Sturdivant, OLB, North Carolina
    Sturdivant is an inside linebacker at North Carolina, but he is more of a weakside linebacker in the NFL. He doesn't have very good size and he struggles to stack and shed. The Raiders have a hole here next to Rolando McClain.

  17. Jacksonville Jaguars: Marcus Cannon, G, TCU
    Cannon is a talented player who is a mauling run blocker. He's big, and as long as his character checks out he could be in play here for the Jaguars.

  18. San Diego Chargers: Gabe Carimi, T, Wisconsin
    Carimi fills a big need for the Chargers at right tackle, and I'm not sold on his draft stock rising in the last month.

  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nate Irving, ILB, N.C. State
    The Bucs' second biggest need next to defensive end (besides another defensive end) is inside linebacker. Barrett Ruud is likely as good as gone, and the Bucs want a thumper in the middle of their defense.

  20. New York Giants: Jurrell Casey, DT, USC
    Defensive tackle is a big need in New York, and Casey can be a disruptive force. He is the interior pass rusher they lack.

  21. Seattle Seahawks: Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech
    Williams had a disappointing season, but there's no doubt in my mind he's a first-round talent.

  22. Indianapolis Colts: Greg Jones, OLB, Michigan State
    Jones fits the mold of what the Colts like in their Tampa-2 defense, and he's an absolute steal at this point in the 2011 NFL Draft.

  23. Philadelphia Eagles: Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
    Smith fills a need at corner for the Eagles and fits their scheme which stresses a lot of man coverage.

  24. Kansas City Chiefs: Johnny Patrick, CB, Louisville
    Patrick's stock is on the rise, and he is a good value here in the second round.

  25. Green Bay Packers: Mason Foster, LB, Washington
    Foster would play inside linebacker in the Packers 3-4 defense. I'm a big fan of his - I love his tenacity and competitive fire.

  26. New York Jets: Jeremy Beal, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    The Jets need to be looking for rush linebackers in the 2011 NFL Draft. They need guys that can make plays.

  27. Baltimore Ravens: Martez Wilson, ILB, Illinois
    Wilson has a high upside, but he is coming off an ACL tear in 2009. Talent-wise, he's the best inside linebacker elligible for the 2011 NFL Draft.

  28. New Orleans Saints: Chris Carter, OLB, Fresno State
    Carter is an underrated prospect out of Fresno State. He's a physical specimen who plays up to his abilities.

  29. Chicago Bears: Ben Ijalana, G, Villanova
    Ijalana would bring a lot of talent to the Bears' offensive line. They need to do a better job of protecting Cutler and creating running lanes.

  30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia
    I still like Dowling, but his stock seems to be falling lately and he ends up in the Steelers' lap here.

  31. Atlanta Falcons: Sam Acho, DE, Texas
    The Falcons could improve their defensive end rotation, and Acho has a little upside. I like his athleticism and burst.

  32. New England Patriots: Curtis Brown, CB, Texas
    The Patriots can never have enough cornerbacks on their roster, and Brown is a very talented prospect.

Skins should load up on offensive play guys this and then they'll have a chance for a QB next year. Blackmon in the first round then Hankerson in the 2nd round.

If the skins take Cam Newton it would another be a huge mistake...a WR or CB would make more sense. Lets see if they are able to unload Mcnabb & Haynesworth for some extra picks in the draft. I do like the JJ Watt pick. I would be content with Grossman as the QB next year....if there is a next year.

Irishleo1980 don't know if we were looking at the same draft but he seems to think the Lions need another D-Lineman because we don't have an elite pass rusher. Ever heard of Nadamakong Suh!? The guy led all DT in sacks in only his rookie year! The Lions either need to wait it out and hope that Amukamara falls to 13 or trade back and draft a OT so Stafford actually makes it through a full season. If they traded back they could probably get another second round pick from the team they traded with. Then if possible get yet another pick in the second. Then their first two rounds could look like OT Derrik Sherrod, CB Brandon Harris or Aaron Williams, LB Greg Jones, and RB Mikel Leshoure. That would address almost all their needs. If they couldn't get a second round pick to take Leshoure they could always take Jamie Harper in the fourth or John Clay in say the seventh as long as they get a power RB. If they did all that, brought in a few free agents, made some trades, and keep Stafford healthy, they would be serious playoff contenders.

Jesus Christ..........Sounds like a lot of sour puss cry babies on here.I don't agree with a few of your picks Matt,but you did a pretty decent job on your mock draft.Kudos to you who took the time to make one when most of these whiners on here probably don't even have one.

Did Branden Albert die? A LT with our first pick? Am I in the right year???

I don't understand KC's drafting of a LT just because Weis is leaving. We still have Muir as our OL coach... don't we?
No Cam Newton at #3 and Bills need a RT more than LT. 01-08-2011 06:44 pm (total posts: 1)

I really hope the Bills don't use the #3 pick on Cam Newton. Newton will fall like Leinhart anyways.

Selecting Newton is a lot like all the other 1st round reached they've drafted over the past decade. Take the top player, not Aaron Maybin. At least one that's been a starter more than 2 years...and no JC doesn't cont.

the rotating carousel at Rt was the biggest reason the bills running game never hit its potential last year.

I believe Bills will go defensive stud Round 1 and offensive line round 2. Round 1 is such big $$ that to use it on a maybe QB could be another in a long line of round 1 mistakes for Bills. I believe Fitzpatrick has shown enough and even though not the franchise QB the "pundits" are looking for,will get to the playoffs with some defensive line talent to stop the run and linebacker talent to rush the passer.

If the Lions can't get Prince Amukamara at 13, they should just trade down and take an OT. They should try to get another 2nd round pick if they trade down and take Greg Jones and take the best corner available which could be Brandon Harris, Janoris Jenkins, or Aaron Willams, all of which would be steals in the second round. Then in one of the late rounds they should take John Clay because he's a lot better than people think and would also be a steal that late.

Not to mention the Titans are 3 deep at Corner with Cortland Finnegan, Ryan Mouton, and Alteraun Verner... Please just stop posting... Forver...

The only way any of this mock draft makes sense is if the writer fell down a flight of stairs before writing it. This is a disaster from start to finish.

Bud Adams did not admit "releasing Vince Young was a mistake". (A)Its the right decision, (B)and he hasn't been released yet. A WR going first overall, I don't care how good he is is a retarded decision, ask the Detroit Lions. A Corner going 2nd to the Broncos? WTF? Cam Newton 3rd overall? Is this... real???

How retarded are you!? The Lions don't have an elite pass rusher, ever heard of Nadamakong Suh, the guy that led DT with sacks in only his rookie year. The Lions should draft the best corner available, wether thats Prine or Jenkins. If they did want to follow the stradegy of drafting the best player available, wouldn't make sense that they take Ingram. Best is a good third down back but doesn't seem to have the strength to be an elite back. All Best does is bounce it outside in hopes that he can outrun the defenders. When Morris stepped in he did good because he ran downhill. Ingram does the same thing with way more talent and youth. All in all though, the Lions have to get a shutdown corner, even if it means trading up.

I like you mock draft a lot. It is well thought out. My father is an Arkansas alum so I watch a ton of Arkansas and SEC football. I agree he is over rated and not a top 10 pick but I don't think he is absolutely going to be a bust. I think he has as good a chance as any of the QBs coming out. None of them are lock in this year or any other draft for that matter. I also disagree that he will not be taken in the first round. Minnesota #11, Miami #15, Jax #16 and Seattle #21 all need upgrades at QB. I think to Jax at 16 is a fair spot for him.
